On view in the North Gallery is Suite Panamericana by Mexican-born, New York-based conceptual artist Pablo Helguera. This exhibition is part of Helguera’s The School of Panamerican Unrest, a public art project connecting different regions of the Americas through discussions, performances, and screenings.

This latest component consists of a new series of collages sourced through images and literary references compiled from textbooks, and are based on Helguera’s recent travels driving through the Americas from Anchorage, Alaska, to Ushuaia, Argentina. Helguera’s various scenarios constitute life in the Americas today, building on previous generations of intellectuals intent on creating a unified cultural region, while revealing the all-too-familiar experiences of displacement and the socio-political impact of migration at a time of increased technological innovation and post-globalization.

Showcased in different organizations across the Americas, the final destination for The School of Panamerican Unrest will take place at El Museo del Barrio, New York in 2008. More information is available at www.panamericanismo.org.

There will be a public performance by Pablo Helguera on Thursday, September 20 at 7:30pm.
